    On her last Sunday as host of CNN's State of the Union, Candy Crowley received a fist bump from Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who thanked her for a "job well done." "I just want to congratulate you," Schumer told Crowley. It's been an amazing 27 years. You're the best of the old-school journalism. You study it thoroughly. You ask the hard questions. You get the answers. And there's no gimmicks or anything else."
  • Witnesses Gone Wild: Why Did McCullough Release Obvious Lies To Grand Jury?

    News One for Black America ^ | December 15, 2014 | Staff
    Since the night St. Louis Country prosecutor Bob McCullough announced that police officer Darren Wilson would face no charges in the death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown and released thousands of documents in connection to the case, many interested parties have combed through the pages and analyzed them, trying to get a sense of why the grand jury decided not to indict. CNN recently did a comprehensive breakdown of Ferguson witness reports which showed how witnesses on both sides presented conflicting information, changed their stories, and some lied under oath. Some witnesses testimony, like that of Dorian Johnson, the...
  • CNN OPINION: Charles Barkley, wrong on race, Ferguson and Garner

    [SNIP] "There is a reason that they racially profile us in the way they do. Sometimes it is wrong, and sometimes it is right," Barkley said. The problem with these statements isn't just that they are misleading -- 16 out of 29 witness statements said that Mike Brown had his hands up to surrender, in direct conflict with Darren Wilson's story; and police used a banned choke hold on Eric Garner, a measure that was known to cause death -- but that Charles Barkley is uniquely and astoundingly unqualified to discuss issues of race, law and police violence. If property...

    Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, says whites do not understand the protests about the deaths of young black men. CNN's Anderson Cooper cited polls that reveal white people do not view the issue the same way as black people. "It's not happening to them, so they don't quite get it," Fulton told Cooper in an interview that aired Friday on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360." "They don't quite understand. They think that it's a small group of African-Americans that's complaining: 'Oh, what are they complaining about now?'" Cooper asked: "You hear that from people?" "Oh yeah," Fulton said. "The...

    (CNN) -- Anthony Weiner thinks Rand Paul is playing it smart. The former Democratic congressman from New York, who resigned in 2011 amid a sexting scandal, offered up some 2016 insight Friday, saying the Kentucky Republican senator is wise to make privacy concerns a big part of his potential presidential platform. "Paul's strategy could put him in a great place in a Republican primary," Weiner wrote in a column for Business Insider. ~snip~ "(Paul's) looking to build a White House bid with his own new age coalition of privacy-concerned, party-non aligned, previously-non voting, SOPA hating, pot tolerant youth," he wrote....

    Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) defended the release of the CIA enhanced interrogation report in a testy exchange with CNN today, arguing that ISIS “may seize” upon the report, “they may not.” Feinstein pushed for the release of the report in the waning days of her chairmanship before handing over the gavel to Republicans in the 114th Congress. “Look, there is no perfect time to release this report,” she said when asked about the potential risk to American lives because of its publication, as the White House warned Monday. “This began 12 years ago.

    On Sunday, CNN’s Inside Politics spent several minutes hyping the supposed headache Tea Partiers could give GOP leadership despite the Republican Party winning their 54th Senate seat following Saturday’s runoff in Louisiana. During the discussion, Robert Costa of The Washington Post insisted that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is trying “to govern responsibly and he wants to set the party up for major gains in '16. And that started in 2014 by pushing back the Tea Party and it starts now by making sure that all the passions and eagerness in the House don't overtake the party.”

    Let’s not forget; to the media, Ferguson was NEVER about law enforcement, death, the black community, justice, injustice, inner city poverty, or whatever other code word that exemplifies what happened in that small Missouri town. To the media, it was all about ratings because they’ve had all their pieces in place for years. The decision to cover the Michael Brown shooting was not a result of its importance. It was a calculated decision by those in the media’s upper echelon to shed their white guilt and bring “attention” to what they consider long-simmering, racial injustice. When the shooting occurred, the...

Griffin said a Congressional source told him that the acting commissioner of the IRS, Steven Miller, has identified two “rogue” employees in the agency’s Cincinnati office, who he characterized as “off the reservation.” The commissioner reportedly said the two, as yet unnamed, employees were “principally responsible for overly aggressive handling of Tea Party requests for tax exempt status over the past two years.” Another source, according to Griffin, said...

In fact, Google “anti-science” and up pops an endless stream of left-wing outlets castigating someone somewhere on the right for being “anti-science” or “science deniers” and so on and on.

As I watch the attempts at such debates taking place not only on the small screen, but on blogs and comment sections around the web, I detect a growing sense of frustration on both sides.

Parcells worked with the Brown family and pathologist Michael Baden on a private autopsy, the results of which Parcells claimed demonstrated that Brown had been (a) shot in the back and (b) shot with his hands in the air in a position of surrender. Both claims were later discredited by the official autopsy and witness accounts to the grand jury that heard the case, but not before the claims made by Parcells on a number of news shows fueled protests...

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” Mr. Ellison was responding to comments from Sen.

Cosby talked to Lemon about young black men raising their kids, over-medication of juvenile inmates, and may have even coined a new word: “No-groes.” For the past few months, Don Lemon has courted controversy with several segments pegged to his general agreement with comments by...

    Earlier this week, a reporter, an editor and a copy editor were suspended over a story they'd worked on highlighting criticisms of a financial partnership between The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education and the activewear retailer Lululemon. There were no errors, fabrications or plagiarized quotes in the story, but a version originally published on Saturday relied primarily on critical anonymously posted comments appearing on the Lululemon website. (The quotations taken from those comments have been removed from the Huffington Post article, according to an editor's note attached to the piece.) Several months earlier, in August, a junior-level writer...

    Get it together, CNN. Twitchy already has an archive of the network’s goofs that could make up its own website, but whoever puts together the banners just won’t let us rest. Friday night’s embarrassment? CNN has an inside track on the Navy SEAL who killed Obama.

    Republican candidates were heavily favored over their Democratic opponents among full-time workers and most college-educated Americans, a CNN exit poll shows. During the midterm elections Tuesday, CNN asked voters leaving the voting booth a series of questions, including, “Do you work full-time for pay?” About 60 percent responded that they did work full-time for pay. Of those, 54 percent said they had voted for a Republican, while 44 percent stated they voted for a Democrat. Another two percent reported voting for “other” candidates. Of the 40 percent who said they did not work full-time for pay, 48 percent said they...

    According to the Weather Channel, its 6am "Wake Up with Al Roker" beat both CNN's New Day" and MSNBC's "Morning Joe" this month:"Morning Joe" has been shedding viewers for about a year. "New Day" is shaping up to be one of television's all-time titanic disasters. In other words, it's not that Al Roker's numbers are so high, it's that CNN's and MSNBC's numbers are so low. Overall, this is another sign of the slow-motion fall of left-wing cable news networks. While -- thanks to great producing, on-air talent, and a willingness to cover news stories the left-wing MSM ignore --...

    Currently, Dish Network's 14 million subscribers do not have access to CNN or other Turner Broadcasting channels like the Cartoon Network. Speaking specifically of CNN, Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen ridiculed the left-wing cable news network's obsessive coverage of the missing Malaysian airliner and said losing the channel was a "non-event." "Twenty years ago, CNN was a must-have channel, but it's not a top 10 network anymore ... unless they find the plane, the Malaysian plane," Ergen said during a conference call. He added that losing CNN just days before a major midterm election would have been "a disaster" for Dish...

    Fox News obliterated its cable news competition during Tuesday night's election coverage, and did so by humiliating margins.
